    You never did mention if he was put in this stall area by himself. If so, I really think that giving him one of the other rams for company would help.
    There is one other thing I think you should address. If he is doing this because of the ewes being in heat, you really need to consider that he could become aggressive towards you or towards your children. This kind of attitude is not acceptable when you have children that could go out in the field with the sheep, or even out to just play in the field. He can hurt a child badly if he were to hit one from the back or side unexpectedly. I think you have a disaster in the making. I know what it is like to get hit by a ram that is only trying to get out of a pen . I was chased by one when I was younger and the friend with me got rammed by him and got 2 of his ribs broken before we could get over the fence.

    He might be a bit gamey but I'll give him a try!
